So I now know that out of “anata wa amerika no tabemono ga donna suki desu ka” and “anata wa donna amerika no tabemono ga suki desu ka?“ the second one is right but my question is why is the first one incorrect?
Sorry just am a bit confused thanks

どんな (what kind of) is always followed by a noun (American food).
It is explained in Course 2 Lesson 10.
どんな たべもの (DONNA TABEMONO) = what kind of food
どんな ひと (DONNA HITO) = What kind of person
どんな (noun) が すきですか。(DONNA "noun" GA SUKI DESUKA)
= What kind of (noun) do you like?
どんな (noun) が ほしいですか。(DONNA "noun" GA HOSHII DESUKA)
= What kind of (noun) do you want?
Memorizing sentence patterns helps :)
Keep up the good work!
